The worst streaming product your 4K TV

published

On Friday 29th January 2021 I purchased Google Chromecast Ultra from the Chirnside Park store but it didn't work on my 4K TV since my TV doesn't have any HDMI Ports so on Sunday 8th August 2021 I returned it and they offered me a full refund.

Purchased in January 2021 at Harvey Norman Retail Stores - Electronics for $95.00.

Convenient. In theory.

The stupid thing has complicated every attempt to relax and unwind It doesn't do something as simple as connect to your phone via bluetooth. You need both a device connected to the net AND a seperate wifi source. Too. Damn. Complicated. If you try to connect it to the hotspot of your phone you're watching over, you will not see it. Yet that is the most common thing someone might want. Why? So that google can ensure that your proxy is blocked so that your privacy is compromised.

I had high hopes for this. Enough with the high ratings, this is a 2 star product at best, you're better off setting a cheap laptops next your your tv. Google; You heartless, greedy, corporate monster. This is not good enough, you have money, do better.

Purchased in May 2019 at Bing Lee Physical store for $160.00.

Simple and easy to connect, where have I heard this before???

Try and connect to a PC, an hour later and the lack of instructions and its still a piece of worthless junk. Works on mobile and laptop - very easy installation, I just get sick and tired of companies advertising something that simply doesn't work. The PC cannot download Google Home so its a case of find and seek and this is just crap

By itself - No.

You need some form of router, be it another phone with tethering or hotspot or hotel wifi and use it to connect chromecast and your phone. I assume you want to watch or play something on your phone else you will be using your hotspot data to connect to Netflix.
